Utah outlasts Portland in comeback win

Gordon Hayward came up big on the 89.

Paul Millsap finished with 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Jazz, who came back from an 11-point second-half deficit despite being without injured starters Al Jefferson (ankle) and Raja Bell (right adductor).

C.J. Miles chipped in 15 points off the bench, while Devin Harris and Josh Howard contributed 13 and 11 points, respectively, in Utah's second straight win.

Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge scored a game-high 25 points, but netted just two in the fourth quarter. Nicolas Batum had 15 points but limped off the court after turning the ball over in the final minute.
